    Even though it isn't necessarily a need for probiotics, I still think that it doesn't hurt for us to eat them in food products. Studies have already shown that there are at least some potential benefits of eating probiotics, if not more. I don't think there is any true harm for now in eating the bacteria, especially since there aren't any serious side effects. I understand that more information is needed, but in the mean time, consuming probiotics doesn't seem like a bad thing.
